I Have Been Busy Tying Lots Of Saltwater Bucktails And Have Recently Read About The Use Of Craft Hair.people Claim That It Is Superior To Natural Bucktail And Less Expensive.does Anyone Have Experience With This Material As Well As A Source

Picked some up from Janns Netcraft a while ago.
Makes a nice jig but it's not bucktail for sure.
More action, nice shape but I found it looked matted towards the head.
Think both have their place.
Hope this helps.

I think the craft hair is good for freshwater jigs. I got some Punisher hair for float and fly jigs and it works fine for that. But saltwater bucktails is a whole 'nother thing and IMO craft hair won't last long in that environment. I'd order a calf tail from Jann's or Cableas, etc for bucktail jigs. The hair is longer, thicker and will be much more durable.
